JACK EICHEL EXPECTED TO MISS REMAINDER OF THE SEASON

APR 14, 2021  (12H42)      COLTON PANKIW
Per Buffalo Sabres beat writer John Vogl, Jack Eichel has a herniated disc in his neck and is expected to miss the remainder of the 2020-21 season.

This is certainly disappointing news for Sabres fans, however Vogl did mention that Eichel is expected to be healthy for the start of the 2021-22 season. Buffalo has been without their captain since March 7, though the talks on what his injury was were kept quiet until today. His season ends with him scoring just two goals and 18 points in 21 games.

According to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman, Eichel will likely be undergoing surgery to repair the disc.

This truly caps off what has been a disaster of a season for the Sabres. Coming into the year, big things were expected of this team after they signed forward Taylor Hall to a one-year deal. However, they ended up going on an 18-game losing streak and recently traded Hall to the Bruins. With how bad they have struggled since Eichel has joined the league, there will certainly be some Eichel trade talk this offseason.
